This webinar includes a free PDF copy of the article “Operation Online Records.”

Online Military Records webnar Review by Dawn Mansfield

This was my first webnar and it certianly won't be my last. I found the information very helpful. The fact that I can continue to go back to review easily is important to me. I now have sites to explore that I would not have known about.
